chance behavior is unpredictable in the short run but has a regular and

We call a phenomenon random if individual outcomes are uncertain

A parameter is a number that describes the population.
A statistic is a number that can be computed from the sample data. In
practice, we often use a statistic to estimate an unknown parameter.
e.g., sample mean x is a statistic, a
General rules about probability
For any event A, 0 P (A) 1.
If S is the sample space, P (S ) = 1.
If A an B are disjoint, P (AorB ) = P (A) + P (B ).
P (notA) = 1 P (A).

Conditions about estimating a population mean :
We have an SRS from the population.
The variable has a Normal distribution N (, ).
We do not know . But
An observational study observes individuals and measures variables
of interest but does not attempt to inuence the responses.
An experiment deliberately imposes some treatment on individuals in
order to observe their responses. The purpose of
